Chelsea have signed defensive midfielder Jorginho in a deal understood to be worth £57m, with new manager Maurizio Sarri tapping into former club Napoli.
“I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea. It is not easy to become part of such a big team so I am very, very happy. I am excited to play in such an intense league for a team that gives everything to play and win,” Jorginho said.
The Brazil-born had been at Napoli since 2014 and scored four goals in 36 appearances for the side last season as they finished second in Serie A.
